Edeline Lee’s SS16 collection was a beautiful array of colours. The designer wanted to experiment with colour this season and she was inspired by the works of Richard Diebenkorn and his Ocean Parks series of paintings and by the Memphis Group a design and architecture group from Milan. The presentation kicked off London Fashion Week at the Elm Lester’s Painting Rooms with the room completely transformed to emphasise the collection.
The collection was full of colour blocking and geometric shapes in a selection of pastels including lilacs, mints, baby blues, and baby pinks. Edeline Lee paired boxy jackets with oversized pockets with shorts and skirts. The masculine silhouettes were sweetened up with Lee’s use of colour. Some models also wore an assortment of a-line dresses and skirts. The amount of techniques used by lee showed off her ingenuity. Some of these included panelling, piping, embroidery and patchwork.
What Edeline Lee had created showed her attention to detail and decision making when it comes to fashion design and design as a whole. What she produced was contemporary and wearable in all the best ways. It was a fun collection that showed off how the designer has grown over the seasons and how she will continue to do so over the years.
As someone who loves pastel colours, retro prints and anything a little ‘Arty’, Edeline Lee’s new SS16 collection is perfect for me. With a great mix of wearable fashion and textured fabrics, Edeline has created fun pieces that are ideal to integrate into your wardrobe and still appear statement enough to turn some heads. Black highlights in the collection almost give an 80’s feel against the deco prints and the cuts and fits appear, relaxed, easy and above all, comfortable.
